### Target 1​

###### Lesson Type:

New

Algebra

:

Variable

Solve equations that use variables to represent unknown numbers.

###### 1:

Identify in a given problem what the unknown information is.

###### 2:

Read, write, and evaluate expressions in which letters stand for numbers.

3rd

###### Vocabulary:

Variable, Expression

Activities:

1. Students matched an algebraic expression with a variable for the unknown information with the corresponding word problem. Students then solved for the unknown/variable.    ### Home Exploration

###### Guiding Questions: ## Absent Students:

### Target 2

:

###### 1:

Solve problems that have more than one operation.

###### 2:

Understand that the presence of parenthesis in an arithmetic equation signals for this part of the problem to be solved first.

###### 3:

Understand that the order of operations must be followed to evaluate expressions.

###### 4:

Define PEMDAS – Parenthesis, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction.

4th

###### Vocabulary:

PEMDAS, Parenthesis, Exponent, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction, Operation

Activities:

1. Students used what they understood of the order of operations to solve given expressions.

2. Students were able to choose the operation to determine the outcome of some expressions.    ### Home Exploration

###### Guiding Questions: ### Target 3

:

###### 1:

Understand that a figure can have multiple lines of symmetry.

###### 2:

Understand that a figure can have no lines of symmetry.

4th

###### Vocabulary:

Symmetry, Line of Symmetry, Hexagon, Trapezoid, Rhombus, Square, Rectangle, Congruent, Reflection

Activities:

1. Students used pattern blocks to create a symmetrical image with one identified line of symmetry. Students had to find the other lines of symmetry if there were any more.

2. Students then used the pattern blocks to create a symmetrical 2D figure with lines of symmetry.    ### Home Exploration
